you guys need to see ben stokesberry's latest video. it is" no big names #4" i think. there were some guys down in central or south america running some really big falls on these things that looked like two small pontoons side by side.they were about five or six feet long. they laid down on them head first and paddled with their hands and feet. these guys ran some crazy falls and actually fared better than some guys in kayaks. basically these guys ran things i wouldn't even think about running. props to you guys who want to run stuff on inner tubes. i think that if you scout and you know your own abilities you set safety like any other boaters and you make your own judgement calls as to whether or not to run something then nobody should be putting you down for what you do. ultimately it is up to you to be safe. you guys probably know better than any of us kayakers how an inner tube handles in different situations. i don't doubt that you guys can run some of the harder drops and rapids that kayakers run, but i feel that you should be cautious in drops that require any big moves from one side of the river to the other, or very technical rapids. i just think that you could not possibly have the manueverability and speed of a kayak. but like i said earlier it is up to you what you want to run. you know people 20 years ago would not believe what people are running in kayaks today. maybe 20 years from now nobody will believe what people are running on inner tubes.

Those guys were running huge granite slides in Brasil,Ben said they don't run vertical falls,but they still have serious guts. I agree with the last post I respect these tubers rights and guts,but you simply don't have much control on really technical stuff,be careful.

If you are the guys who ran the gore race last year, I have to say I loved it! My family and friends all think I am nuts for kayaking. Maybe tubing isn't far behind. If you survive the race again this year, come by the beer tent. I'll hook you up with a brew! I wouldn't run anything on a tube, but it makes for a very cool video! I also wanted to give you kudos for donning the protective gear. It sets a good example for all the red-necked, beer guzzling, barefoot tubers I see around with no pfd's. Now THAT is crazy!

live the dream!
